Bumblebee Camaro @ Kansas City Auto Show

I took pictures and shook down the hot spokesperson for Camaro details. She knows nothing. I'll just post a few so you guys can start drooling. I know I was! If you can't open these here, open them in a new window! They are all on Facebook.

I saw Bumblebee from across the room and came running.

Apparently, Bumblebee got into a fight with some Decepticons along the way.

Check out that chiseled side!

This one concerns me. The pipe appears to become one pipe towards the front, and there is a gap between the body and the underbody molding. That could have been done better, but how many people look under a car to take a picture? I'm guessing that's just us.

Toyota is ripping off the Chevrolet SS with their Corolla S3! Tell me they didn't rip that off, and I will tell you you're wrong.

Can I get this as an option for the Corolla S3? I didn't think so, Toyota. Why do you have to go and tease me like that?

Toyota can sure pimp an engine bay.

I guess they thought they could pimp the rims, too. Damn—those are ugly!

I love the Mini interior. You can't disrespect a cool interior, even if you can't fit a person behind it.

The BMW M5 is class out the ass.

I see some lines that may have helped inspire the concept Camaro. Notice the screen placement and radio shape.

Broken images

Sorry brother.

Edit:
Thanks for the Pics!!! I wouldn't be too concerned about the undercarriage... I'm not sure if the same goes for the bumblebee cars but the original concept is a chopped STS or CTS. Cant remember. Either way this won't be what the Holden/Zeta based cars will look like.

And besides this one was built by that sissy Saleen. And, "He's a dirty trash can full of Poop" - (Surfs Up, Sony 2007.) Which means he was thinking like a ford guy when he did it. So who knows...

The Bumblebee's (2 of them at least) are built off of heavily modded GTO chassis. I think they've been dubbed "GTMaros"

Does anyone else have thoughts on the S3? That's the one that got under my skin. I'm guessing the S3 means something like Supreme Super Sport and the emblem is clearly stolen from Chevrolet's SS platforms, based on an old Monte Carlo SS that got the emblem first. The S3 is like stabbing at any SS on the road. Is anyone else taking it as personally as I am?

Naw...there's so many other classes of veh's out there...just another name. Now, if they used the SS emblem, I wouldn't be happy.

Actually, that's Trish -- and she does know a lot -- but she also knows that if she spills the beans -- it's.......................




..............for her.


Bumblebee is a GTO chassis -- with a Camaro body applied --

So -- don't be concerned by what you see underneath him.

(by the way -- you made him blush, taking pictures of him that way.....)

I thought Bumblebee turned a little pink after that. Anyway, Trish was great conversation. I meant she didn't "know" anything, as in she wouldn't tell me anything new. I didn't expect her to tell me anything new but it was fun to try. It's really great to see someone standing by the car that loves it as much as us enthusiasts do. I couldn't say the same for the Ford rep, which happened to be a robot.

this car kinda pisses me off. first off its a gto under there. and second is the rims and brakes are hub caps. look at the discs, there is no caliper. lastly it was built by saleen, but i have no beef there. they work alot on custom cars. but make fords. WTF?!?

in other news i would still drive this car, and take it if it was offered to me

Since it's built by Saleen, we can always blame them for everything we don't like.

well.........that's cuz we had about 15 minutes to build two cars for the movie.

What would you have done?

I researched putting a set of the 'concept' wheels on both Bumblebees -- and then I got the cost for 8 custom made aluminum wheels --

...................and when they picked me up off the ground .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ....................

Cars in movies are usually abused........

I'd rather pay for easily made plastic wheelcovers -- than to have to sell off a state or two in order to afford the replacement wheels...........

as it stands, weren't the steel wheels and custom made hubcaps expensive enough? seems to me I remember us having a conversation about those wheel covers and huge steel rims and their value was pretty high, so I can only imagine what it would have cost to make real alloy replicas... besides, dont we want to keep the real wheels on the real Camaros and not on the GTO Camaros?

Don't recall where, but I remember reading that... I think it was 3 months that Saleen had to make 2 GTO's into concept Camaro's. I recall it taking 2 months to make the first one and the second was done in something like 3 weeks. Crazy to just "put'em together" in that kind of time! And they did all the body panels from just specs and measurements on paper, right?!

Besides the wheels, I don't know how anyone could tell the difference between the two (from the outside)...Bumblebee and the concept.

i can because of the calipers. thats really it tho. and the concepts are a little deeper i think. but i am also including the "brake disc" as part of the wheel.

Ok...I meant the wheel in general...all the parts including caliper and rotors. All good.

there are subtle differences... once you've been up close to the silver coupe and Bumblebee, you can see the differences... its hard to explain, but they're just two different sizes... to me, its like seeing identical twins: they both look the same until you get to know them... and then you learn the differences.

Should have passed the bill on to the movie studio....God knows thay made enough money to supply all of us with custom made aluminum wheels.
